Tampa gets the goalie its been so desperately needing finishing last in save% the past 2 seasons along with 2 decent prospects. Luongo gets to move closer to his Florida home and his wifes family. Vancouver gets a solid backup who can split games with Schnieder, A great young player who is friends with Hodgson and the second overall pick (Hedman). This move would allow Vancouver to rebuild without much complaint from the fans, as they would be icing a young exciting team.
This deal is so far out of whack I can't possibly describe it. There is NO way that TB would move either Stamkos or the 2nd overall with 1 year of Luongo as the centerpiece of the deal coming back. Adding in the 2nd overall pick is just getting kinky IMO.

Where Luongo wants to live has NO bearing on this deal, unless he's willing to resign in TB long term at a reduced rate, which I highly doubt.
